America wasn’t meant to be an empire, but a land of individual liberty. Empires destroy liberty. Why must our money be taken from us for weapons and endless war? Our money shouldn’t be taken from us at all, let alone for that! Why not use our money to fix our deteriorating country? Why do our politicians constantly complain about our deteriorating country, yet constantly vote for weapons and war? Why do politicians speak “America First,” but vote “Empire First”? Why do they complain about our poor, but vote to make more of us poor? Since Empires always go bankrupt, why are our politicians pushing us to that extreme? Are they that terrified of us being free?

President Biden exhibited poor diplomacy (again); this time by calling Chinese President Xi a “dictator,” while Xi was still here in the U.S.! Whether Xi is or isn’t a “dictator” really has nothing to do with Americans. That’s an issue for the Chinese citizens to work out for themselves. It’s their government, not ours. America’s foreign policy should be based on the policy of the Founders of our nation: “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.” We aren’t even remotely close to such a policy; and it’s costing us dearly. As our nation fails at being “the world’s policeman,” our livelihoods and standards of living are declining rapidly. Chris Rossini joins Dr. Paul.
The answer for me and my staff has been the same for many years: Antiwar.com. I read Antiwar.com every day because it’s the best way to get a handle on the news without the steady barrage of propaganda that is served up nearly everywhere else.
Do you want to know the truth about what’s happening anywhere in the world without the spin? Antiwar.com is your source. How about daily editorial and opinion pieces from writers you can trust who pull no punches? Antiwar.com.
When I was in Congress what did my staff pack into my briefing folders? Articles from Antiwar.com. That’s how I got prepared for the stream of pro-war talking points that both parties laid on thick. That was my antidote and my secret weapon against their warmongering and lies.

While economically suffering at home, Americans are being plundered to finance Ukraine’s war against Russia to the tune of over $100+ BILLION so far. Meanwhile, the U.S. government plans to increase the number of US troops training Taiwanese forces. Absolutely none of this has anything to do with defending America, or protecting our safety. It does, on the other hand, ratchet up tensions with Russia and China, both of which are major nuclear powers.
The policy of harming and isolating Russia has backfired hard on Europe. This should provide a learning opportunity for Americans. In an interconnected world, it’s never good policy to bite the hand that feeds you. Americans should keep this in mind when considering policy towards countries like China. Trade is superior to sanctions.
